Mini Pizza Pocket Super Bowl Snacks

By Kris Drewry

It’s almost Super Bowl Sunday, and you know what that means: There are wings to be eaten, teams jerseys to be worn, drinks to be bought, and food to be prepared.

Why order out when you can make some great Super Bowl party appetizers at your house?

There are many quick and easy options that will have you out of the kitchen before kickoff. Just make sure you’ve got enough ice in the freezer and cold drinks on hand.

Try out these two recipes for a great addition to your game day eats.

These mini pizza pockets are much better than the frozen kind! Just use your favorite pizza toppings to create a cheesy snack your guests will go crazy for.

Ingredients:

Pre-made pizza dough- store bought or your favorite crust recipe

1/2 cup pizza sauce (plus extra for serving)

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup pepperoni, chopped

**Any of your favorite pizza toppings**

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Separate dough into 8 tennis ball sized mounds (making more or less depending on how much pizza dough you have).

Roll each mound out flat until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Top one side of the dough with 1 tbsp pizza sauce, 1 tbsp ricotta, 1 tbsp mozzarella, and a sprinkle of pepperoni.

Fold the dough over and crease to seal it, cut a slit into the top of the dough to allow air to escape.

Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes- or until the tops are a golden brown. Serve with extra pizza sauce or marinara for dipping.
